Why can’t we see those screens we love
In our day to day lives,
Why are our brains so desperately sure
That phones and tablets
Don’t have a place in our world,
Those terrible lights and gamma rays
That make us miss sleep and slightly depressed.
Maybe our dreams are telling us that
We need to go back to a simpler time?
I saw a Tweet today that asked the question – if we are on our phones for 12 hours a day then why do we not dream about them?
Now, there were quite a few people who replied to the Tweet and said that they always dream about their phones, but a lot said that in those dreams they were often in an emergency and the phone didn’t work.
I didn’t even realise that I don’t dream about phones until I read that Tweet, but it does make me think that perhaps this is our brains showing us that what we are forcing on them is wrong. We should not be feeding them a diet of TikTok videos and constant emails.
Our brains need a rest and our subconscious is obviously trying to say something about it.
